Join us at the 10th International Meshing Roundtable to be held in 
warm and sunny Newport Beach, California, on October 7-10, 2001.

In 1992, Sandia National Laboratories started the Meshing Roundtable 
as a small meeting of like-minded companies and organizations 
striving to establish a common focus for research and development in 
the field of mesh and grid generation.  Now after 10 consecutive 
years, the International Meshing Roundtable has become recognized as 
an international focal point annually attended by researchers and 
developers from dozens of countries around the world.  The relaxed 
atmosphere at each Roundtable provides an open and technically rich 
environment in which to share new ideas and technical advances.

The International Meshing Roundtable continues to focus on bringing 
together researchers and developers from academia, national labs and 
industry in a stimulating, open environment to share technical 
information related to mesh generation and general pre-processing 
techniques.  In 2001, Roundtable attendees will enjoy the balmy 
weather and breathtaking beaches of Newport Beach, California, 
located between Los Angeles and San Diego on the Pacific coast. This 
year's conference will be hosted by UGS, Inc. which maintains its 
principle development site in Southern California.

Events at Roundtable 2001 include:
   * Pre-conference short course on Sunday, October 7
   * Technical presentations of contributed papers
   * Keynote and invited speakers
   * Poster session with "Best Technical Poster", "Best Student Poster" and
     "Meshing Maestro" awards. We encourage submission of posters presenting
       novel research results as well as posters showcasing 
state-of-the-art technology
       by industry developers and meshing software vendors.
   * Birds-of-a-Feather session providing a discussion forum for small groups
      of researchers working in similar fields.
   * Panel discussion.
   * Dinner Banquet

More information on the Roundtable, as it becomes available, will be 
published at the International Meshing Roundtable website: 

Limited financial support from the National Science Foundation 
(www.nsf.gov) will be made available to student attendees from US 
academic institutions to defray travel and conference registration 
expenses. Awards of funding to students will be based on active 
research in mesh generation or interest in meshing as a future 
research topic. Funding awards will be prioritized as follows:  

* Presentation of a research paper at the conference (accepted 
through the regular review process)
* Presentation of a poster at the poster session accompanied by a 
brief, written research description
* Submission of a one-page, written statement of interest from 
beginning graduate students, signed
    by their advisor and/or chairman of their department.

All students must provide a copy of their student ID. Please send all 
proposals to Nikos Chrisochoides. More information regarding travel 
support for students will be posted on the International Meshing 
Roundtable website: http://www.imr.sandia.gov

                                      Newport Beach, California, USA

Papers are being sought that present original results on meshing and 
related topics. We encourage theoretical and novel ideas with 
practical potential as well as technical applications from industrial 
researchers. In addition to our core topics in meshing related 
algorithms, we are also interested in obtaining technical papers that 
relate analysis and application solutions to the mesh generation 
process. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

* Volume and surface mesh generation
* Structured and unstructured grid generation
* Hybrid meshing
* Anisotropic mesh generation
* Mesh quality, smoothing, and optimization
* Adaptive meshing
* Geometry simplification, decomposition, and cleanup
* Industrial applications for complex geometries
* Large mesh manipulation
* CAD Interface for meshing
* Parallel meshing algorithms and software
* Meshing of parametric models
* Theoretical basis of mesh generation

The conference proceedings will be published by Sandia National 
Laboratories and distributed at the Roundtable. In addition, papers 
of exceptionally high quality will be published in a special issue of 
Engineering with Computers.

Papers should contain significant technical content to be accepted. 
No paper will be accepted for publication without an accompanying 
presentation at the conference. Accepted papers will be published in 
the proceedings and may also be available on the website pending 
author approval.

Papers should be 8-12 pages in length (9 point, two columns) and 
received by June 1, 2001. Paper submissions will be accepted in Word 
and PostScript, electronic submission only.  Formatting details 
including templates for Word and LaTeX will be available on the 
conference web site. Final camera-ready papers not meeting formatting 
guidelines will not be accepted for publication in the proceedings.. 
Papers can be transferred by anonymous ftp to endo.sandia.gov (place 
in directory pub/incoming/pknupp/10imr) or can be mailed to 
pknupp at sandia.gov.

Files transferred via anonymous ftp should be named as follows, to 
avoid collisions on the ftp site: names should start with the first 
author's last name, followed by a hyphen, followed by the last four 
digits of the author's phone number.  Authors should send email to 
Patrick Knupp, (pknupp at sandia.gov) with the paper title and file name 
immediately after placing it on the site.

Questions regarding paper submission should be addressed to Patrick 
Knupp or Nikos Chrisochoides, Technical Papers Co-Chairs.

A detailed registration packet and registration form will be mailed 
and will be made available on the International Meshing Roundtable 
WWW page at: http://www.imr.sandia.gov

The site of this year's Roundtable is the city of Newport Beach, 
California (http://www.newportbeach.com). The Roundtable will be held 
at the Marriott Hotel & Tennis Club in Newport Beach  which is 
centrally located between Los Angeles and San Diego. The Marriott is 
adjacent to Fashion Island, an extraordinary shopping destination 
featuring over 200 stores and restaurants overlooking the beautiful 
Pacific Ocean and Newport Harbor.

There are four airports with convenient service to Newport Beach:
* Orange County Airport (SNA) also known as John Wayne International, 
5 miles from the hotel
* Long Beach (LGB, 25 miles away from the hotel.)
* Los Angeles International (LAX), 43 miles, will accommodate 
international flights and
    boasts cheaper fares.
* Ontario International Airport (ONT), 45 miles away from Newport Beach.

Super Shuttle service (1-800-258-3826) or (714-517-6600) is available 
from all of these airports to the Marriott, or reservations can be 
made online at http://www.supershuttle.com.
